Norman the Nomad drawn by Belasco!

I had the honor of being drawn by one of my favorite artists, Belasco, a few months ago. Belasco is an illustrator known for erotic comics depicting Black gay characters. Think Bishop from X-men with a hardon and you get the idea. Basically he just did some figure drawings but I was really excited for the opportunity.

Pride 2009

LA Pride 2009 was a pretty crazy time! I got to hang out with a bunch of friends and to my surprise wound up on a float for the whole parade route. It was fun seeing all the black girls get excited when they saw a dreaded brotha in the parade. I guess we were underrepresented. Hopefully there will be more pics to come!
